Are you content with your 30 seconds of fame? Also Why the F is there a CX power supply in there? Do your research! CX = Office use only , no gaming!  GO for a HXi but then that would be out of your budget and therefore your post would be invalid.

 

Someones going to bitch about the CX power supply, just wait.

Yeah I will. because it is SATAN. I own one and am replacing it tomorrow.

You are crazy. You picked the PSU that will burn your system

Stop spreading misinformation. CX was a good option a few years ago, but now there are better PSUs that cost the same and have better build quality. This doesn't mean that the CX series is now in one category with 15$ Ebay PSUs


Molex to SATA, lose all your data

So being blown up for having a house on fire means that they're still safe for gaming? I don't think so.

I think I'd go with a decent air cooler, and lower the HDD to 1TB or 1.5 TB then add an SSD

h440 is also a very specialized case for a specific purpose I wouldn't recommend one for most people with clear disclaimers on its limitations/fallbacks honestly. I say this as someone who owns one

a ssd is not really needed tbh. Most people only need a hd

Also no while its not needed there isnt much excuse for a system of this cost to not have one.

OCZ shows that on average you will save 6days a year waiting for your pc to boot up if you use an SSD. SSDs make everything better, they are better for most people than HDDs


PC is Intel Core i5 6400, GIgabyte H170 Gaming 3, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB 2400Mhz ,Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB, WD Blue 1TB, NZXT S340, ASUS Geforce GTX 960. Fractal Design Tesla R2 650W. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/793XNG. Graphics card choices don't always have to be dictated on performance. If you want the game stream and power consumption of the GTX 970 get that. If you want raw performance of the R9 390 get that. In the end we are all gamers, so what if your buddy gets an extra 5 fps?

That won't happen.

 

Everyone is exaggerating how bad the CX series is. It's not going to blow up and it's not going to instantly set fire to everything. People have heard it's bad, but don't really understand why, so they just say it's terrible and will kill everything. 

 

Yes, it is not suitable for high end rigs, as the power delivery is not stable enough and it can't handle temperatures over 30C. It is more likely to die than similarly priced alternatives, but it is not likely to blow anything up. The amount of hate and misunderstanding on the CX series is getting out of hand on the forum, as well as the people blindly recommending EVGA for powersupplies, just because they have some good ones in their line up of branded units with varying quality.

No excuse for a $1200 build to not have an SSD of SOME capacity even if only to install the OS on.
